Three decades after the Empire's defeat, a new threat arises in the militant First Order. Stormtrooper defector Finn and spare parts scavenger Rey are caught up in the Resistance's search for the missing Luke Skywalker.
Three years into the Clone Wars, the Jedi rescue Palpatine from Count Dooku. As Obi-Wan pursues a new threat, Anakin acts as a double agent between the Jedi Council and Palpatine and is lured into a sinister plan to rule the galaxy.
After the rebels are overpowered by the Empire on their newly established base, Luke Skywalker begins Jedi training with Yoda. His friends accept shelter from a questionable ally as Darth Vader hunts them in a plan to capture Luke.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a Wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle-station while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the Senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.
After a daring mission to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt, the rebels dispatch to Endor to destroy a more powerful Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke struggles to help Vader back from the dark side without falling into the Emperor's trap.
The title of "Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi" was first published in Spanish and translated to "The Last Jedis," meaning the title is plural. See more »
Supreme Leader Snoke refers to Kylo Ren as the 'heir apparent' to Darth Vader. Under the right of primogeniture the heir apparent would be Vader's first born child. Episode III suggests that Luke was born first which would make him the heir apparent. If the system of succession was sufficiently different to that of earth, in such a way that, say, the youngest heir would inherit (or similar), then Kylo Ren would only be the heir presumptive, as he could have been supplanted by the birth of another child.

I don't know where to even begin with this movie, as another reviewer has said, it gleefully thumbs it's nose and mocks, via feminist and SJW claptrap, much of what made Star Wars great. Mark Hamill has said that he fundamentally disagreed with almost every decision Rian Johnson made for Luke's character and I've got to say that he's been quite restrained in saying that because what's been done to the character of Luke Skywalker in this movie is nothing short of cultural vandalism.
With this movie Rian Johnson makes JJ Abrams look like Spielberg, it absolutely boggles the mind that Disney have given him a whole trilogy. You've got to wonder just what planet these Hollywood types occupy. This most millennial of movies - preachy, shallow, self satisfied, lazy, boring and nowhere near as smart as it thinks it is - with a whole act that's completely pointless, is chock full of terribly out of place, cartoonish humour and laughably bad dialogue - Luke chose the island because it was "the most unfindable" - I kid you not, he actually says that. He needn't have worried, I highly doubt this insulting hack job will be much sought after in the years to come.
